About the GSS

Graduate Student Senate serves and represents graduate students at Ohio University. Our membership policy permits representation of graduate students from every department, school, and college. To apply, click on the Join GSS link on the left.

There are many benefits of representing your fellow students on GSS. You can play an active part in the policymaking of graduate student issues and graduate education as a whole. In the past, members of GSS have been members of Graduate Council, the Graduate Priorities Implementation Team of Vision Ohio, Budget Planning Council, and many other important committees. Members of GSS also work closely with the International Student Union, Student Senate, and the Ohio University Graduate Council.

We strongly encourage you to represent your department, school, or college on GSS. Even if your program and college senator positions are filled, we may be able to find a place for you as a commissioner, executive,staff member, or as just a member of a GSS committee, such as Original Work and Travel Grant committees.

GSS meets every other week in the Scripps Hall, Room 111. The GSS Office is located in 302, Baker University Center.
